Compassionate Action for Animals
Creating respect and justice for animals in our world
Help us save thousands of animals from the horrors of factory farms by volunteering with CAA! CAA has several large campaigns coming up, and we need all of the help we can get. The easiest way to get involved is to fill out a volunteer form online!
If you recently tried filling out a volunteer form but ran into trouble, we have fixed the form on our website. Please consider filling one out again. Thanks!
Although you may already be familiar with Erik Marcus's "Vegan: A New Ethics of Eating," Marcus changes the direction in his latest and highly anticipated book, "Meat Market: Animal, Ethics, and Money." The book covers the exploitation of farm animals in the various industries and assesses the downfalls and progress of the animal protection movement. Join CAA members for the Meat Market book club, starting next week, where we'll read selected chapters and discuss the issues over some vegan sweet treats. Additionally, Marcus will be speaking for CAA in early November and has agreed to separately meet with the book club to address our thoughts on the work.
Email us at info@ExploreVeg.org if you are interested in participating in the reading group.

Helping animals, people, and the environment has never been simpler!
Mary Britton Clouse of Chicken Run Rescue entertained and enlightened attendees of last Friday's potluck with a multimedia presentation on the lives of chickens. Meanwhile, positive feedback has continued to roll in about the Veg Pledge. Here are some selections:
"After going to [Peaceable Kingdom] on Monday night, I thought long and hard about my convictions towards life. Since Peaceable Kingdom, I have been vegetarian and have decided to take this road for the rest of my life. I had never seen a video portraying life in such a way as that documentary did. Everyone should see what is going on and question their ideologies. Thank you for helping me do so."
"Emphasizing support of one another was really great, I thought. It shows people how it isn't difficult to eat vegetarian or vegan and still lead a "normal" life."
"I am a vegetarian now...This inspired me to take an active role in my food choices. I also think that I am going to cut out more dairy from my diet."
